Meet the Author Guests

Guest Authors

From its inception, Fairfax Network’s Meet the Author series has served to promote literacy, and an interest in reading and writing, by giving students direct access to authors who share their personal stories, offer their writing tips, and encourage students to “keep reading, keep writing, keep dreaming.” Many of these author visits are available in our Video Store, as a downloadable MP4 video file, and on our YouTube Channel.
